Writing has been my passion since childhood. I hope to share God's message of love and grace for each of us through writing books and the blog.
God has truly blessed me with love and grace. My husband Chip and I have been together since our high school days in northeast Ohio and have been married almost 40 years!
We have two married children. Our son Nick and his wife Adriane recently gave us our first grandchild, little Jaxon Ray. We live near them outside Charlotte, North Carolina and I spend lots of time taking care of Jax. Our daughter Melissa and her husband Paul live near Charleston, South Carolina. I visit as often as I can and love walking on the beach with them and their three little rescue dogs: Mabel, Queenie, and Chloe.
In my free time, I love being with my family most of all. I also enjoy the beach, walking in local parks, swimming, reading, decorating, cooking and baking, gardening, landscaping, flower arranging, hosting tea parties, and working in women's ministry at my church. You'll find characters in my stories who share these interests!
Besides writing, I am founder and board president for a non-profit ministry in Charleston, South Carolina. Sanctuary of Unborn Life (SOUL) supports pregnant women and new moms in need with mentoring and housing assistance. To learn more about this ministry, visit www.SanctuaryOfUnbornLife.org. A portion of all book proceeds benefit SOUL.
I pray that my stories help you realize that God loves you no matter what!
God’s Blessings to You,
Do You Have Assurance of Heaven?
Heaven is a perfect paradise without pain, suffering, or sin.
Since we have all sinned and fallen short of God's glory, our sins need to be cleansed to enter heaven.
"For everyone has sinned; we all fall short of God's glorious standard."
Romans 3: 23
God loves you so much, that He sent His only Son, Jesus Christ to be our Savior.
No matter who you are or what you've done, Jesus paid the price for YOUR sins when He died on a cross.
"He personally carried our sins in his body on the cross so that we can be dead to sin and live for what is right. By his wounds you are healed."
I Peter 2: 24
"For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life through Christ Jesus our Lord."
Romans 6: 23
By God's grace, your sins have been forgiven through Jesus' death.
All you have to do is BELIEVE.
"If you openly declare that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead,
you will be saved."
Romans 10: 9
"God saved you by his grace when you believed. And you can't take credit for this; it is a gift from God. Salvation is not a reward for the good things we have done, so none of us can boast about it."
Ephesians 2: 8-9
